It’s not always easy. Moving house can physically, mentally and emotionally taxing. But if there’s a silver lining to this exhausting cloud it’s that once you’ve moved, the boxes have been unpacked, your old possessions feel at home in their new space, and you’ve met (and like) the neighbours, you can start looking forward to everything the move represents. Fun and friendship. Safety and security. Absolute independence, but also support if you need it. Retirement offers a whole other life to live – and being in an environment which nurtures and supports that life is worth its weight in gold.
